I was born and raised in Italy, and moved to Israel as a teenager. I acquired the love for the English language from my father, a former U.S. soldier and WWII veteran, a voracious reader and a prolific writer.
With a PhD in chemical engineering and a long family history that I need to live up to, I work as a patent attorney and head the patent law firm that was established by my great-grandfather in Milan, Italy, in 1869. I live in Omer, Israel, with my full-time partner, Esther, our four children, Michal, Lilach, Tamar and Yonatan, and the dog Elvis.
Writing has always been my passion and for almost four years I wrote a weekly "Patents" column in Globes (Israel’s financial newspaper), which also yielded my non-fiction book, THE WORLD OF PATENTS, (a not-so-boring tale of what patents are about, in Hebrew), which was published in 2002 by Globes Press. Since then, although I vowed not to spend time on non-fiction books, I released a new, more international and more comprehensive book, FUN WITH PATENTS, published in February of 2016.
I love writing short stories but I have too many novels waiting to be written (and possibly not enough years ahead of me to write them all), so now I mostly write full-length fiction. My other passion is working with other authors on stories I love and that's how I wound up serving on the editorial board of The Harrow Press as Anthology Editor until the end of 2014, when The Harrow Press folded its tent
